Hormone Balancing Drinks and for Blood Sugar Levels

Table of Contents

Balance your hormone and blood sugar levels with these seven easy DIY hormone and blood sugar balancing drinks. They’re delicious and nutritious!

When it comes to hormone balancing drinks, as a nutritionist, I always prioritise a food first approach when it comes to nourishing the body. Eating whole foods and chewing them properly is the best way to ensure optimal digestion and nutrient absorption.

However, I understand that sometimes life gets busy, and we need quick and convenient options to stay fuelled and nourished. That’s where healthy drinks come in!

Smoothies, shakes, and other drinks can be a convenient way to pack in extra nutrients, especially on those busy days when you’re on the go. They’re easy to make, portable, and can be customized to your taste preferences and nutritional needs.

Read on for some examples of my favourites:

Hormone balancing drinks – teas

Spearmint

Hormone Balancing Drinks and Blood Sugar Levels

Spearmint tea is delicious, refreshing and has been shown to have numerous health benefits, particularly for women dealing with hormonal imbalances such as PCOS.

This tea contains compounds that have been found to help regulate hormone levels and reduce androgen levels in women, which can lead to improved symptoms.

So if you’re looking for a natural and tasty way to support your hormonal health, consider incorporating spearmint tea into your daily routine!

Dandelion

Dandelion is a potent herb known for its detoxifying and cleansing properties. This tea helps neutralise toxins and supports the body’s natural ability to eliminate waste products via the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder.

In addition to its cleansing effects, dandelion tea has been shown to have beneficial effects on hormonal health. For women experiencing PMS or hormonal acne, dandelion can help by breaking down excess oestrogen.

This herb also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a great choice for those struggling with hormonal acne.

Chamomile

Chamomile tea is a soothing and calming beverage that has been used for centuries to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality. However, many people are unaware that chamomile tea is a great example of a hormone and blood sugar balancing drink.

Chamomile contains compounds that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, which can help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body – both of which can contribute to hormonal imbalances.
